    What third party?
    I hope it isn't the .gov because "efficient government" is an oxymoron.

    BP does have to screen claims for fraud, otherwise every tom and dick would get an undeserved pay out.
    I think we've already seen something similar with Katrina.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    How has BP shown that it's incapable of paying out this money? They've already voluntarily distributed $100+ million in claims.

    Indeed. The real definition of bi-partisanship is Americans getting screwed by both parties at the same time. When a party has power, they don't give a **** about working with the other side.

    How can BP not be able to afford this? Their net cash flow alone for six months is sufficent to cover several years of payments.
